Product Information

This really is a novelty plant and something different - so different in fact, we've not grown them fully either (yet!).

We've located a small specialist grower in Holland who is developing ways to grow Avocados in Northern Europe and these fine trees are a great starting point.

Avocados thrive in warm, humid conditions, so will need winter protection in the UK - they can grow outside on patios fine though between late May and September. They will grow quite quickly at 50cm a year and these are already pruned back, so this season will produce side branches.

It makes an attractive indoor plant anyway, forming a woody trunk with pleasant glossy leaves. They usually take 5-7 years to produce fruit on a mature tree, and have fruited in UK before - indoors and out.

These Avocados are so new though, you will have great fun trying growing them regardless of whether they fruit, safe in the knowledge that virtually no-one else has ever grown one!

Very limitted stocks so order yours now to avoid disappointment!

Care Information

Aftercare Advice for Avocado:

  • Grow in a bright, sunny position.
  • The avocado dislikes soil that is either excessively wet or dry. Water freely in summer and allow the top cm (half inch) or so to dry out before watering again.
  • Water less frequently in winter and keep plants at around 13-18C (55-65F).
  • Feed with a general-purpose liquid houseplant feed every seven to ten days during the spring and summer and once every 2 months at other times.


Pruning Advice for Avocado:

  • Plants may become lanky and may need pinching back from time to time.
  • Plants which have grown too large will usually respond well to hard pruning.
